“Mercer ER Presents Hurricane Harvey Heroes Relief Block Party Event”


Victoria, Texas— Mercer Emergency Center, a freestanding ER located at 6902 Zac Lentz Parkway, invites the public to join them to help recognize area volunteers that came to our community’s aid before, during and after Hurricane Harvey. The public is invited to attend a celebration block party for local volunteer that made a difference. The event will be held on Saturday, November 18 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Mercer’s parking lot, located just in front of Home Depot. Boxes lunches will be provided to the first 150 attendees at noon with a short volunteer recognition presentation from Mercer physicians and music from the Chad Cooke Band, including his song “Come and Take It” written in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.


“We were so amazed by the stories of strength, courage and goodwill shared with us on the Mercer Facebook for our Hurricane Harvey Heroes promotion that we decided to have an event for the public to thank these heroes in person,” said Cindy Hicks Rodriguez, Marketing Director for Mercer Emergency Center. “We at Mercer know there is still a lot of healing going on and a lot of work that still needs to be done in our area, but we just want everyone to come out and have some fun and enjoy some good food, music and meet the local dream team of physicians at Mercer Emergency Center.”


Attendees will enjoy refreshing food and drink, as well as entertainment by the Chad Cooke Band, an opportunity to hear from local Mercer physicians and have the opportunity to shake hands with area volunteers and first responders that were there to support Victoria and the surrounding areas. Donations will also be accepted for the lunch and will be given to the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent.


“We applaud the work of local volunteers and are excited to recognize their efforts at this event. When you think of Hurricane Harvey, you think of families and charities in need – of supplies, of manpower and we want help highlight those that stepped up to help when we needed them most,“ said Dr. Jimmy Grossman, President of Mercer Emergency Center. 


“We hope we can serve as a platform for sharing the stories of unsung heroes during and after the storm and recognize them for their selfless acts of service,” said Grossman.


Those wanting to attend the event and enjoy lunch are encouraged to RSVP by calling 361-576-9437 or RSVP on the event listed on the Mercer Emergency Center Facebook page.
